Identity documents in the United States
are typically the regional state-issued driver’s license or identity card, while also the Social Security card (or just the Social Security number) and the United States Passport Card may serve as national identification. The United States passport itself also may serve as identification. There is, however, no official “national identity card” in the United States, in the sense that there is no federal agency with nationwide jurisdiction that directly issues an identity document to all US citizens for mandatory regular use.
There have been proposals to nationalize ID cards, as currently citizens are identified by a patchwork of documents issued by both the federal government as well as individual state and local governments.
It is both a political issue and a practical one, and the idea of federalism is cited as supporting federated (regional) identification. All legislative attempts to create a national identity card have failed due to tenacious opposition from liberal and conservative politicians alike, who regard the national identity card as the mark of a totalitarian society.

I was surfing the high digital seas of the darknet the other day and came across a couple sites that I thought were interesting and would share with you all. The first site is an emporium that sells a little of everything but mostly drugs but in their “forgeries and counterfeit” section I came across some goodies in their internal search engine. Primarily what I am going to bring you today kids is how you too can buy forged documents in the darknet to start a new life somewhere in the world. Watch now as I unfold to you this tale of tradecraft and OPSEC….
PSA: Ok ok, yeah buying this stuff in the darknet is likely to have one of three outcomes..
1) You pay and you get nothing.
2) You pay and you get arrested when you pick up the package.
3) You pay, you get the package, and then are arrested trying to use the documents.
SO DON’T TRY THIS AT HOME KIDS!
Right, back to the whole buying fake documents and how to use them thing! So if you do want to have an alternate identification you can attempt to use the documents being sold in the darknet but you have to do your leg work too. See, if you want a real and lasting identity (other than your own) then you have to do this slowly and carefully. Much of this really relies on the quality of the documents as well as the backstopping you will need to do in order to have at least a chance of using them effectively. The first thing you will want to do is get an SSN that is clean and with the way things are now so interconnected, it may be harder today than it was in the almost recent past to get a clean one that is age appropriate to you.
The most common national photo identity documents are the passport and passport card,
which are issued by the U.S. Department of State to U.S. nationals only upon voluntary application. Issuance of these documents is discretionary – that is, for various reasons, the State Department can refuse an application for a passport or passport card.
More recently, various trusted traveler programs have been opened to the public in the United States, including TSA Precheck, Sentri, Nexus, FAST (Free and Secure Trade), and Global Entry. With the exception of TSA Precheck, which provides a unique “Known Traveler Number,” these programs provide photo IDs issued by the Department of Homeland Security and are considered national photo IDs.
